Dancing With The Stars – Season 9, Episode 3 – Week 1, Results
They started off the night, as usual, with a repeat performance. The judges selected Kelly Osbourne and Louis Van Amstel for a repeat performance of their Viennese Waltz. I have to admit, it made me tear up again! I really do think it was because of the pure joy on Kelly’s face during most of the performance.
First 2 Safe Men Announced
Louie Vito & Chelsie Hightower
Aaron Carter & Karina Smirnoff
They are doing this again this season. This week the voting was to determine the type of dance, Paso Doble was selected. The next item to vote on is the song.
Sean Kingston performed tonight. He brought his own dancers with him, which usually annoys me, but they were not that bad, very basic Hip-Hop, but not bad.
Next up was a montage of interviews with, and clips of, those stars who have been eliminated in the first round on previous seasons. They were referring to themselves, or the two that spoke were (Kenny Mayne and Jeffrey Ross), as the “Losers Club.”
Next 3 Safe Men Announced
Mark Dacascos & Lacey Schwimmer
Chuck Liddell & Anna Trebunskaya
Donny Osmond & Kym Johnson
Tom DeLay & Cheryl Burke were announced as safe.
Ashley Hamilton & Edyta Sliwinska were eliminated.
Michael Irvin & Anna Demidova are therefore safe.
World Premiere Video
Next up was the World Premiere of Miley Cyrus’ next video. I had to fast forward, thank goodness for TiVo, I am just not into the Miley craze!
First 2 Safe Women Announced
Natalie Coughlin & Alec Mazo
Mya & Dmitry Chaplin
Following that there was some sort of segment with Adam Carolla giving the men a pep talk, it started off silly and I missed the rest thanks to TiVo!
Macy’s Stars of Dance
Tonight it was 41 performers from the cast of “The Lion King.” They performed “The Circle of Life.” It was so awesome, it gave me the same chills I got when I saw it live in the theatre. I just wish they had turned up the singer’s mic at the beginning because the applause and cheering drowned her out.
Next 3 Safe Women Announced
Melissa Joan Hart & Mark Ballas
Joanna Krupa & Derek Hough
Debi Mazar & Maksim Chmerkovskiy (I was so glad to see them announced as safe, she looked so worried!)
Tribute to Patrick Swayze
This made me cry so hard, I was a huge fan and love all he did for the dance world. They did a 3-song medley. The first song was “She’s Like the Wind” from “Dirty Dancing” (Chelsie and Dmitry were the dancers), my only complaint about the whole thing comes here—I REALLY wish they had used a recording of him actually singing the song instead of using a member of the band. Next was “Unchained Melody” from “Ghost” (Jonathan and Anna T. were the dancers), the dance was a bit cheesy. The final song was “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” (Tony Dovolani and Cheryl Burke were the main dancers, with the previous 4 dancers and Anna Demidova and Louis Van Amstel added in for the group bit), this was essentially a truncated version of the actual dance performed by Patrick Swayze & Jennifer Grey at the end of the movie.
